Patrick blearily rose from his pallet, disentangling sheets, blankets, dogs and the odd (very odd!) remote control for the cable box to make his way to the loo to answer the frantic urgings of his bladder. On his way, he was heard to mutter:
“Wil of "The Daily Snooze" asked if he'd missed a note about this week's Tuesday Two being postponed. Until he asked, it had completely slipped my mind, which should give you an idea of the kind of week I've had. But, at least I remembered the Saturday Six!
“For those who'd like to join in on the fun, playing is simple: you can either answer the questions in this journal or you can answer them in your own blog and leave a link. It is strongly recommended that you answer the journals in your blog and post the link...since several of the people who are playing have relocated away from AOL, it's important that everyone knows where your new (or temporary) blogging homes are, so if you don't mind, leave a first name and your journal's link, just so we can find you easier!
“But before the questions, the tradition of the "Saturday Six" is to recognize the first one to play the week before. Carly, of "Ellipsis...Suddenly Carly" was the first person to play last week, which is especially appropriate since she had the Reader's Choice Question! Congratulations, Carly.
“Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!”
1. Which of the following generally costs you more: a normal trip to your barber/hairstylist, your usual lunch at your favorite restaurant, the most recent amount you paid to fill up your gas tank, or your biggest single contribution to a single charity in 2005?
I haven't seen a barber in almost two years. Back then it was costing $10 a pop. Lunch averages $8 plus tip in these parts. A fill-up yesterday was only $22 and my largest contribution to a single charity this year would go for many times the largest amount cited if sold on the open market.
2. What drink -- alcoholic or not -- do you drink entirely too much of?
Diet Soda. Decaf Diet Coke, to be specific. Although, I do drink a pot of decaf coffee most days, so the answer is a toss-up, actually.
3. Did you receive a Christmas card from anyone you didn't send one to? Did you send them a belated card in return?
I don't send cards, so all the cards received go unrequited. There were about a half dozen this year.
4. Take this quiz (if you haven't already!): What is most important in your life?
Family is most important in your life.
5. Before taking the quiz, which of its categories (career, love, money, health, family or fun) would you have said would be your answer?
Money & Work, about dead even.
Do you believe in soul mates? Do you think that there are at least one out there for every person, that there is a single "true" soul mate for every person, or that there aren't soul mates for everyone?
You have to believe in “souls” to believe in “soul mates” No, I don't believe in soul mates, although I do find that some people fit together more readily than others. In my opinion, it isn't a 1::1 ratio.
